Art exhibition Information
Japanese modern porcelain exhibition
22 October – 22 November 2020
Twelve years we have been holding exhibitions of Japanese porcelain artist Nobuhiko Tanaka at Time & Style in Japan. His porcelain is characterized by pastel colour gradations, a soft matte texture and embodies an organic beauty. Performing all processes himself, his works are imbued with his unique sensitivity while including traditional techniques. The porcelain comes in a wide variety of cups, pots, jugs, plates, bowls, flower vases and is sturdy and practical, naturally finding a place into our daily lives.
Nobuhiko Tanaka’s first exhibition at Time & Style Amsterdam was in 2018. His porcelain is receiving much support internationally, being loved by European people and used by restaurants. In 2020, we announce his second exhibition at Time & Style Amsterdam.
Tanaka explains: “During the first exhibition in Amsterdam, I was thrilled to feel that a new door had opened for myself, having been making porcelain for 30 years. For this second exhibition, in addition to my main collection of “Porcelain in colour” with soft pastel colours and matte textures I created “Gomashiote”, a translucent white porcelain with black dot patterns. I also created “Turquoise blue” porcelain with deep colours. Please enjoy my various works.”
Time & Style will exhibit 300 Japanese modern porcelain works by Nobuhiko Tanaka each distinct in their colour and shape. We continue to be fascinated every time when we see his ever-innovating porcelain.
